Symphony 10/28/2018 TA - Special Email to Pinnacle Members from Millie

Recommended Posts

For those sailing on the Symphony

Dear Pinnacle Club Member,

 

Your Symphony of the Seas sailing is just a few days away, and we are so excited to welcome you onboard and have you experience the NEW sound of adventure.

 

In preparation for your voyage, I, along with the Symphony of the Seas team have made some exclusive enhancements to accommodate our most valued Pinnacle Club members.

 

On Boarding day, we look forward to welcoming you with a special lunch in Main Dining Room, Deck 3 from 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm. The Symphony team and I will be waiting for your arrival to assist with all your loyalty and onboard reservation needs, including Coastal Kitchen. We will be providing three guaranteed reservations in Coastal Kitchen for this sailing, and accepting daily walk-ins for dinner. Space is limited, and is likely to fill up quickly. Therefore, we appreciate your understanding.

 

During this sailing, Dazzles on Deck 8 will be your exclusive Happy Hour venue for Pinnacle members only each evening from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Also, I will be starting our celebration in Dazzles for an exclusive Pinnacle Club cocktail party on Boarding day immediately following Muster Drill from 5:00 pm — 8:30 pm.

 

As always your SeaPass cards will be loaded with 3 complimentary drinks to allow the freedom to explore and enjoy the many lounges and bars on board with new or old friends that may not have access to your exclusive area. The Crown & Anchor Society drink menu will be available to you throughout the entire ship (excluding Bionic Bar & Rising Tide Bar) during the Happy Hour.

 

We have reserved Chops Grille on Deck 8, in the beautiful Central Park as an exclusive venue for our Pinnacle Club members to enjoy breakfast and lunch curated from the Coastal Kitchen menu. Breakfast hours will be from 7:00 am – 9:30 am on port days and from 8:00 am - 10:00 am on sea days. Lunch will be served from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm on port days and sea days. There is no need to make reservations as Chops Grille, is exclusive for Pinnacle Club members for breakfast and lunch.

In addition, we haven’t forgotten about your specialty coffees. If the lounge gets too crowded during the morning rush, step into any of these alternative venues and present your SeaPass card for a specialty coffee:

 

ALTERNATIVE VENUES

Keep in mind, with the extraordinary amount of Crown & Anchor Society members sailing, priority luggage may experience a slight delay in delivery. Therefore, please keep necessary items such as medications with you when you board.

 

The Symphony team has also planned some not to be missed events during this cruise. And - don’t forget to pack your costume for our Halloween bash and costume contest.

I look forward to meeting all of you in Dining Room, Deck 3 on Boarding day to start this amazing adventure. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Good plan

 

The alternative venues page break seems like something is missing.

 

So are PC allowed in SL for happy hour?

I thought the same thing, but that is exactly how the email was posted on FB.  It appears that Millie may have wanted to included the names of Alternate Venues, but did not.

 

PC Members will have Dazzles as their venue for Happy Hour as stated in the email "During this sailing, Dazzles on Deck 8 will be your exclusive Happy Hour venue for Pinnacle members only each evening from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm".

There is a Diamond/Diamond + letter posted on the rollcall that has the list of alternate venues.  Looks like when they copied/pasted the letter to make it for Pinnacle, they missed a piece.

So if you’re not Pinnacle, no Dazzles and no Chops lunches all week.

It seems like Dazzles should be available after 8PM. 

Enjoy

Very similar to the President's cruise using Dazzles.  In that case Suites were allowed in Dazzles as well.  One private night in the Solarium. Chops lunch is a new add, but we had that option for breakfast.

Don't let Andy C see this. 🙂 Though perhaps the limitations on reservations in Coastal Kitchen will help it some.

Glad to read this.  Pinnacles deserve their own recognition but not at the expense of Suite paying guests.  There has to be a permanent solution that does not infringe on Suite guests like the current set up does.

Here is the Alternative Venues that were omitted from Millie's email to PC Members.  I copied it from the email she sent to D+Members and I am going to assume it's the same as it is in reference to Specialty Coffees:

Thanks for the update. Very similar to the Mariner repo.

Too bad this was not available during the President's Cruise,  now I am rethinking my balcony room for a suite as long as I can enjoy Suite Benefits.

Just to set the record straight, the list of venues was not omitted as it went out to Pinnacles.  Apparently whoever posted it on FB  made the omission.

Is anyone else really feeling sorry for Millie...... wouldn't want to be in her shoes over the next 2 weeks!!!

 

And right on the heels of the President's Cruise.   Probably didn't even get a chance to catch her breath before diving into this one.

Why picking on Andy? I believe he has some valid points.

I seriously doubt it's any worse than President Cruise last month.  She made it through that fine

He does.  On certain sailings,  not across the board

Indeed its all in good fun. As valid of points made, some humor had to be made of it all. We all know Andy is a good guy. 🙂
